Commentary

Both monograms on this seal are not truly resolved; there is no apparent α in either, though it is possible that an α is contained in the Ν on the reverse (and even on the obverse), or that the broken top letter of the obverse cruciform is a λ/α. With this seal as is, no more satisfying resolution can be found.
